Redoing this poll due to a suggestion by @kilroy_was_here ...
What name do you like best for a non-profit #FOSS community for Ham Radio? Think Apache incubator but for Ham plus other open-source services and resources for the community.
FYI I have both the dot com and dot org as well as the hyphenated and non hyphenated versions of the below. Please mention which variant you prefer in comments.
In german, we call us "Funkamateur" (Funk = sparc, comes from the original spark transmitters). It's basically like the english radio, just that the german. "Radio" normally means an FM or DAB+ radio. It's purely a receiver.
And "Amateur" stems from greek (or latin, unsure), it means "lover of".
No pigs to be seen here :-)
Even more bad: for weird reasons the term "bacon" has a bad connotation is muslim countries. They think that a pig is something bad, not to be eaten. I would therefore never name a supposedly international organization with "beacon" in its name. With "ham" I could at least argue that this is just the english word and doesn't have anything to do with pig meat.
